Red spangle??

The purplish tinge to the comb is often indicative of a lack of oxygen getting to the bloodstream. Can indicate an early respiratory upset, like a mild head cold.

The little chick looks a little like an Australorp chick. It's at least 2-3 weeks younger than the older chicks - hopefully it's not in with them all the time, as that age difference can cause issues in a group.

Ah - I see you say they're all Araucana. In which case I got nuttin', sorry!

the colour of the comb can indicate bruising or traumer by other roosters or some sort of harrassment. extreme cold can do it but i doubt it would happen in rocky.

looks like mottling, dominant white and perhaps some melanizers causing lacing somewhere, seeing the full bird would help more. possibly could call it a gold spangle or something like that as it is no fixed colour in breedsat the moment.

I'd say the rooster might even be something like a rhode island red x leghorn, seeing maghogany and dominant white in my opinion.

The first boy is a ISA brown (mother) x Silkie x leghorn (Father) and okay they must have been fighting a bit because they seem healthy enough no weazing or anything.

And for the little tiny baby ara chick in that picture do you think its a E or ER? All those babies came from the same parents.

Thanks for your help so far to :D

I believe a respitory problem doesn't need to have other symptoms when mild. I would watch him carefully, and maybe give a little extra protein might help. surely someone will know if this is right??

i don't say much about repiratory problems anymore as i get sick of saying the same thing over and over again and no one wanting to really know what i recomend or face reality so no comment here.
